FROM: All Persons Affixing their Signature Respectfully in Protest


This petition is in Response to the news of the non-renewal of an employment contract for a valued employee of the Dickinson Law School, Mr. Mac H. Nelson. This soon to be non-employee has had no involvement in the planning, drafting or disseminating of this petition. This petition is being drafted on his behalf by concerned law students of Penn State.

The Fall of 2006 marks a difficult and burdensome transitional time for the students, staff and administration of the Pennsylvania State University Law School: the Dickinson School of Law. WE THE UNDERSIGNED are disappointed, disillusioned and disheartened with a transition that many of us didnt anticipate would be this major and far reaching. The ramifications of this transition are only now being realized by many. A promise of ample parking has turned into a reality of sparse spaces and no parking. A building loved and cherished by students and staff, that has stood for generations, was first set to be razed, to make way for a neo-modern structure that would redefine the term out of place, now sits in limbo: its proud occupants, who studied in its ample, well furnished library, comfortable classrooms and historic halls, banished to Turnpike junction. Instead of a short stroll through historic streets, law students will now be forced into a trek that can be described as, depending on which of the routes taken, perilous, congested or maddening. While shuttles will be available, they are not 24 hour, they are not plentiful and they cannot flythey will be subjected to the same traffic commuters facemaking for long waits and chaotic schedules.

WE THE UNDERSIGNED are weary, concerned and seek reassurance, information and honest, frank communiquйs from those in charge telling us how it is, not how it was conceived to be. WE THE UNDERSIGNED also expected and now disappointedly hope that the faces we recognized from Trickett Hall will be present in Pseudo Trickett Hall. In all this chaos, in all this transition, the familiar, the trusted and the appreciated must be maintained. WE THE UNDERSIGNED want the familiar, the trusted and the appreciated and all these characteristics define Mr. Mac H. Nelson. The morale of the UNDERSIGNED is low, our tasks great, our confidence shaken and our facilities unlike any similarly ranked law school in this nation. WE THE UNDERSIGNED understand the path to improvement and glory involves transitionsand we embrace sound policy leading to these noble goals; but we cannot understand, nor accept the loss of our trusted and appreciatedWE THE UNDERSIGNED affix our names below to this petition of protest.

Considering the difficult transitional times, the loyalty of service, the joy, support and assistance Mr. Nelson brings to the students and no doubt staff of this Law School, WE THE UNDERSIGNED respectfully request that Dean Philip J. McConnaughay, et al. (listed in full above), take heed of this Petition of Protest and with all deliberate speed offer Mr. Mac H. Nelson a position, in some capacity, where he rightfully belongsbeside us, his cherished friends and at the Pennsylvania State University Law School: the Dickinson School of Law wherever that may be.

Respectfully and in Protest, This the 12th Day of August, 2006.
